Default Convert to GPE

Can anyone explain why there's no converting the Verizon model to GPE? It's been touched on a few times but no answer given that I can find. If the hardware is all the same why can't it be?

Yes... It has been answered a few times. The vzw m8 uses different partitions and it is simply not possible to make it a gpe phone. A ROM is the closest we can get there is simply no way to convert the device

OK I guess that means the partitions can't be changed. Leave it to Verizon to do something totally different. The only GPE ROM there is is digitalhigh's and it doesn't have "on a phone call web browsing" which is a must for me. Thanks for the answer though greatly appreciated.
